White Dragon Pagodas, which also named White Stupa or Bamboo Shoot Pagodas, is located on the top of a small hill behind Manfeilong village, Damenglong County of Jinghong City. Built in 1204, it is a stupa group constructed in the shape of an octagon, with the largest in the midst circled by the eight smaller ones. Due to their pure white, the Pagodas are noted for their cleanness and holiness. With golden pointed tops, the White Pagodas seem to be bamboo shoots freshly out of the earth, so they are also called the Bamboo Shoot Pagodas.
The major stupa in the center is 16.29 meters tall, with an 8.6-meter- diameter base, and minor ones 9.1 meters high. A huge footprint, which was said to be left by Buddha, is in its niche used to hold a figure of Buddha.
In the south of White Stupa, about 3.5 miles away, there is a Black Pagoda. Tourists can walk there from Damenglong County.
This stupa group, originally designed by three Indian Monks and weathered vicissitude in history, nowadays is a cultural site under national class protection, and attracts tourists and Buddhists from home and abroad.
